As an essential part of the Lifehouse church Leadership family, you have a responsibility to develop and demonstrate mature Christian behavior. This should be the basic foundation for your desire to participate in a servant-leader position here at Lifehouse Church.
While serving the Body of Christ as a servant-leader, you are making a commitment to present a good appearance at all times, with regard to attire, attitude and actions, while striving to apply biblical standards in all situations. As a follower of Jesus, the way we present ourselves to others has an important impact on the way others perceive Christ.
Lifehouse Church servant-leaders should exemplify a high moral commitment and maintain a lifestyle of reading the bible, prayer, and forgiveness. You must also refrain from things such as:
. Criticism and Gossip
. Drug abuse of any description
. Dishonest gain
. Sexually immoral behavior
. All behavior that might cause Christ to grieve and others to stumble
By being Godly examples in our speech and actions, we encourage and inspire others to grow in Christ and also become servant-leaders. Growing into maturity in Christ should be regarded as an essential part of our development, not as an imposition or restriction. A Godly way of life should be the mark of all servant-leaders in the Lifehouse Church family.
I understand that Lifehouse Church is a safe place for children and vulnerable adults and that Lifehouse complies with government laws regarding reporting suspected child abuse. As a member of the Dream Team, I understand that suspected child abuse is to be reported to the staff member who oversees the area in which I serve. I also understand the four types of abuse defined below:
. Physical: a physical act directed at a child or vulnerable adult that causes injury.
. Sexual: contact or interaction between a child and an adult, or another child, when the child is being used for sexual stimulation of the perpetrator or another person. This includes exploitation through photographs, videos, or other communication methods.
. Emotional: acts of omissions by the parent or other caregivers that have caused, or could cause, serious behavioral, cognitive, emotional, or mental disorders.
. Neglect: failure to provide for the child or vulnerable adult’s basic needs. This includes adequate adult supervision, medical attention, housing, food, and clothing. Most cases of physical neglect involve inadequate adult supervision that has caused harm to the child or vulnerable adult or places them in danger of such harm.
I understand it is not my responsibility to investigate and in no instance will I confront a parent or caregiver if abuse is suspected. As a member of the Dream Team, I agree to comply with this policy and report any suspected abuse to the staff person who oversees the area in which I serve.
